the regulatory environment will look like next year. they don't know what demand will look like next year. and so, because of these uncertainties as a result of the fiscal cliff and the fact that we haven't had any policies really coming out of congress and the white house to really fix this, it's all been monetary policy, the federal reserve has really been the only one out there, the only game in town to really provide stimulus for this economy. we don't have an energy policy. we haven't had a budget in three years. as a result, businesses are waiting to see what happens in this election, and they're waiting to see what their lives will look like tax rates, regulation, etc., they're upset about the healthcare expense, so they're waiting until after the election to really decide if, in fact, they will hire new workers and put new money to work. i think we really are in standstill right now. host: here's the headline, "wall street braces for an obama win." mitt romney was wall street street's candidate, a former private equity executive, committed to lower taxes and less regulation, who would nev

environment for compromise. so, things have always work themselves through and i think they will now but that fiscal cliff thing is looming as a real problem and it doesn't have to be because the basic guts of it are good and i think having, relying on the central bank to shoulder all the burden of charging the economy and abandoning the fiscal side because of the difficulty in the political process you know is unfair and gives us a skewed and unfair view of the rio i think in a lot of ways courage. whether it works or not is still open to debate and people are certainly exercising their power to grant it fully but if you are -- if only one side of the car is driving you will go in circles. >> we just had simpson-bowles and two years too late with a couple trillion dollars extra debt on top. >> sometimes the policy needs that time to sort out. the fact that it's an efficient in the long term, the efficiencies we take in order to get people to throw in, the long-term is what makes the system stable. so i'm not worried that we will get it and let me say on the more optimistic side peop

this is going to work in a wheel world environment. as a result of a valid link this program and everything that went with it, that's what was behind us putting the management changes that we put in place. establishing a centralized program management organization that will bring best practices program management to ensure that we can hit deadlines, we can hit milestones and we can get budgets. that's why we elevated and expanded the responsibility of our nextgen organization so that we can ensure that we have appropriate system integration that we're taking account how one project effects of the projects and schedules and so forth. what we wanted to do was make sure that we were using best practices that are used in any business for managing a large complex undertaking of this sort. it was in june 2011 that we rebaselining to the eram program. at that time we said that that project was going to be three years and 80 must be on schedule because of the problems that i told you about, and it was going to cost $330 million. today, that still exactly where we are. we have hit the milestones tha

environment providing a safe and nurturing atmosphere for the families. we feel that the families progress through the program living life on life's terms because they experience everyday living. they take care of their children. they cook for their children. they get their children up to go to school. so the benefit of being in a one-shop model where everything is onsite is such a benefit to the families. i think, overall, the families here at the exodus program respond really well to just the genuine concern that our staff displays to them on a day-to-day basis. one of the things that we try to do as early on as possible is to try to have our clients develop a real positive support system. whether it be through church, through meetings, through other peers that are here at the program, reconnecting with their family members. i think that's definitely the first step. well, having a place to live and being around other families that are like ours is very helpful because i feel like we get to help each other. and it's not just me getting help. i see that i am not alone. i enjoy that all of
in the last couple of weeks that this is an environment where there is still opportunity for extremist to make trouble. i should point out that our friends on the other side of out like to imagine that if they were in charge, we would be so tough that everyone would understand where we stood and would not be able to protest against us. it is worth noting that the last time these folks were in charge during the george bush administration, there were attacks on u.s. embassies and consulates. it is important to remember that during the reagan administration, there was an attack in which killed americans. these folks let us into the most disastrous for a policy decision in a generation. it in power in iran. it killed more than 4000 americans. it left hundreds of thousands of iraqis dead or displaced. but these folks want us to hand over the keys of foreign policy back to them? the nerve of the individuals " put attention to the worst farm policy disaster and say that the understand the region better is laughable. >> you mentioned syria. there is a lot of pressure for the administration to get invo
